In a kind of a "letter" customer receives with his new cable, Mr. Kiuchi makes a clear statement: the Hijiri ? SMT Takumi Maestro is intended for experienced music lovers who missed a chance to own X-DC Studio Master Million Maestro.
KRAKOW SONIC SOCIETY, meeting #72: KAZUO KIUCHI (Combak Corporation) in Kraków, see HERE(Polish) Mr. Kiuchi's new cable is the result of a reflection on the reproduced sound. Trivial? - A little bit, yes, but it is also the key to understanding what this man is seeking and from which side he climbs an audiophile Mount Everest. I've heard this before with Harmonix and Hijiri ? power cables, so this is not a surprise for me. I also experienced what Kiuchi-san is capable of achieving when making cost-no-object product and having sufficient time for a project-the result is so unique cable, as the X-DC Studio Master Million Maestro. This is an approach, in which the most important is the experience, not the technological advancement of the product. This is more of a "listen first, measure later" approach. If the measurements seem off but the sound is right, well to hell with measurements (this comes from me, not Mr Kiuchi). It is a feature of all Mr. Kiuchi's cables, but here it is simply phenomenal. But it is, however, still Mr. Kiuchi's cable and as such, it avoids being literal. Kazuo Kiuchi | 4-20, Ikego 2-chome, Zushi-shi Kanagawa 249-0003 | Japan email@example.com
To bring out a sense of originality, Billion Media decided to establish an audio room dedicated to the Reimyo brand and allow more audiophiles to experience the tuning skills of Kazuo Kiuchi, who is the CEO of Combak.
However, Kiuchi also said that he was a bit surprised when he saw the place because the reflection surfaces in the bi-level are not very easy to work with. Fortunately, he had visited the place during its decoration phase, and requested the designer to use certain materials for certain areas (common construction materials rather than dedicated acoustic materials). Kiuchi then conducted tuning after the decoration was completed, thus achieving the current acoustic performance. Kiuchi's Gourmet Dessert The systems installed on the scene included a Reimyo CDP-777 CD player, CAT-777 pre-amplifier and power amplifier, an ALS-777 power supply, and the Bravo! Consequence speakers which were exhibited in CES (there are only two pairs of these speakers in the world). How much does Kiuchi value the Taiwanese market? You have found an answer when you know that both pairs of Bravo! Consequence speakers are in Taiwan. Naturally, the entire room was covered with Harmonix acoustic sheets, all the cables used were made by Harmonix, and the power supply was made by Enacom. Kiuchi even treated the guests to some desserts he made himself before he left Japan for Taiwan.
Think Rethm's Jacob George from India and Japan's Kiuchi-Fusai or Mr. and Mrs. Kazuo Kiuchi of Combak/Harmonix.

Kiuchi also has the rare title to serve as the exclusive distributor for XRCD and is heavily involved in their studio recording/mastering techniques.
By the way the XRCD24 logo can be found more and more often on Combak Corporation products-one should know that Mr Kiuchi is a co-owner of XRCD technology, too.
Mr Kiuchi chose this name for his new interconnect to emphasize that this is a new generation of product, a very important one for its creator. This interconnect belongs to the top line called Million and replaces the previous top models from Harmonix Golden Performance line. Already its look suggests that it belongs to the top line-similarly colored sleeve and wooden elements are a clear resemblance to Harmonix X-DC Studio Master Million Maestro power cord, that we recently reviewed and that proved to be absolutely remarkable. As usually Mr Kiuchi doesn't share information about the design. I asked him once why he offered so few information about his products that were based on certain technologies and solutions and he told me that bragging about technical details was a mistake because all that really mattered was music: „whenever a product does not fulfill its primary role, which is conveying music in the best possible way (at particular price level of course), it doesn't matter at all how much one would know about the design, materials, parameters and so on". One can agree with such approach or not, but it is a clear statement of Mr Kiuchi's philosophy. KAZUO KIUCHI Combak Corporation | Owner CRACOW SONIC SOCIETY, meeting #72: KAZUO KIUCHI (Combak Corporation) in Cracow, seeHERE (lang. Polish) Harmonix cables are well known around the audio world for one, due to the sound quality they offer, and secondly because of their creator, Mr Kiuchi. Mr Kiuchi has been using this policy of small improvements, of taking one step at a time for years and it was a wise choice and a good decision. The new Mr Kiuchi's interconnect offers amazingly open sound. It might be a worthy culmination of Mr Kiuchi's work and I am sure that JVC Victor studio that is using these cables now will offer even better XRCD24 than ever before.
